My New Herb Garden

I was recently inspired by a post on a blog near and dear to my heart, “Addicted 2 Decorating”.  In the post, Kristi gathered some really good looking ideas for herb gardens.  Also, I was prompted by the changing of the seasons and the need for me to refresh the flowers in the clay pots I have in various places.  Add that to the fact that 4′ pots of herbs were on sale at Northaven Gardens, and I knew I had a plan.

I decided to replace the flowers with herbs.

With herbs, I hopefully won’t have to replace them so often.  Plus, I love the way they look AND they are useful to have around.

So, here are pictures of what I did.

I love the way these look.

  1. Love all your herbs pots! On the last pic, is the top pot stevia? I just bought a stevia plant, and put it in my garden box, but I really don’t know what to do with it.

      In that last picture, the top pot is actually a mint plant I’ve had for a long time. As for what I’ll do with the stevia. I actually have no idea. One of my staff took one of the leaves off of my plant on Friday and ate it and LOVED it. I don’t know if maybe I could crush the leaves and use it to sweeten things?

      Off to Google I go!

      In other news, do you want me to get you herb plants while they’re still on sale at Northaven? If you get twelve they’re only $1.50 for 4″ pots.
